Leading Tom Stephenson

Hi Peter,

Lots of bird activity today with fairly good range of species including 16 species of warblers, 4 species of flycatcher and a Merlin looking for any and all of the above...

Hightlights were probably Phila Vireo for a few, Merlin, Wilson's, Cape May, western and eastern Palms, Brown Thrasher, Olive-sided Flycatcher, and Green-winged Teal. Also found a bird that seemed like a Wood Duck/Mallard hybrid...very odd-looking.

Here's the list.
